Please read this Policy and our Terms of Service (the “Terms of Service”) carefully, as you are agreeing to be bound by both documents by visiting the Website. If you do not agree with any part of this Policy, you must not continue to visit or utilize the Website, because your use of the Website will constitute your acceptance of this Policy.

WDF may change, revise, or update this Policy from time to time. If we make any significant changes to this Policy, we will place a notice of change(s) on the Website, but in any case, please check review this Policy on a regular basis.
If you have any questions about this Policy or concerning your personal information please contact WDF at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information You Provide
The type and amount of information we collect depends on why you are providing it. In certain cases, the information we collect includes “personal information,” which means data that allows someone to identify you, including, for example, your name, address, geographic location of your computer or mobile device, telephone number, and/or email address.
We always collect and process your personal information in a lawful manner. We also comply with data minimization principles. In other words, through your use of the Website, we try to collect and process only the minimal amount of personal information required to deliver the Website to you. We do, however, provide avenues where you are able to supply additional information voluntarily through the Website. If we collect information about you through the Website other than as described in this Policy, we will give you notice and/or seek your explicit consent.
The information we collect (including personal information) when you make an enquiry or contact WDF via the Website or email includes your name, organization, email address, and any information you include in your message to WDF.
If you make a donation to WDF, we will use a third party payment processor to process that donation, which is currently PayPal. If you choose to make a donation via our third party payment processor, you will be asked to provide certain information to process that payment and for identification and verification, such as your PayPal account information, name, credit, debit or other card number, card expiration date, and/or CVV code. This information is encrypted and sent to the third party payment processor. We do not store or have access to this payment information, however, we may receive other personal information about you, such as your name and/or email address. Note that our third party payment processors may retain this information in accordance with their own privacy policies and terms. You may read more about PayPal’s privacy practices here: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.
Information Collected Automatically
Whenever you use or visit the Website, we collect certain types of non-personal information automatically. By “non-personal information,” we mean information about you that cannot be used, and is not stored, in a way that can identify you. The types of non-personal information WDF collects include your IP address, referring URL, operating system, cookie information, information about your operating environment, and Internet Service Provider. In addition:
The Website may collect information about your location based on your IP address. An IP address is a non-static identifier that allows WDF to know, in general terms, where Users are located. An IP address is not the same as a physical address and is not the same as either your shipping address or your billing address. WDF may use your IP address for internal purposes such as knowing which countries provide certain percentages of its Users. WDF does not distribute your IP address to any other person or entity. WDF does not verify your IP address or connect it to you in any way. Your IP is used by WDF to try to identify you personally.
WDF may collect information such as the number of Users using the Website at any given time, the times during which Users visit the Website, the length of time that Users use the Website, which pages they visit, and what other actions they take while on the Website. This information is used by WDF to track the engagement, general geographic origin, and headcount of its Users. This information may be combined together to provide general demographic information on the Website’s Users. This information is not and cannot be used to identify you personally.
In addition, WDF has social media pages. Any information submitted there may be read and viewed publicly.
